Chelsea Kaplan’s Musings About Life... After Birth


Posted by Chelsea on September 26, 2007

According to Reality Blurred, Bravo has started production on a new reality docudrama called “Manhattan Moms”, which follows “an eclectic group of Gotham socialites and their families.” In a press release,  Bravo’s Frances Berwick says the following: “We’ll watch as they juggle calendars packed with charity fund-raising galas and the social whirl of the Hamptons, with interviews for elite private schools and high-powered careers.”

Manhattan moms, (and moms to be) who read this blog, is this what your “reality” consists of?

I don’t have kids yet, but I see my friends here in the city who do and for many it really is constant juggling between social events/travel between multiple residences/private school jockeying for later in life.  I think for a small segment of Manhattanites this is absolutely their reality.  It all seems a bit too overwhelming and fast-paced for me, so I’m heading to the suburbs.

Not at all. Try “barely fitting into a 1 bedroom apartment and desperately looking to move to the suburbs”!

My life isn’t like this at all. Actually, it’s pretty typical and probably a lot like what moms across the country do. Preschool, work, gymboree, dinner, bed - and then the same thing all over again the next day!

      Um, does this even need a caption? Doubtful, but let me just say that this is the hottest hour on television. Vampires are seriously sexy (especially Eric), and on this show you get to see a lot of them--if you get what I mean. Put the kids to bed and flip the channel to HBO on Sundays at 9 p.m. to taste the fun that is True Blood.
